    DescriptionOld Greek Folk Stories Told Anew Classic Greek Tales Once upon a time, men made friends with the Earth. They listened to all that woods and waters might say; their eyes were keen to see wonders in silent country places and in the living creatures that had not learned to be afraid. To this wise world outside the people took their joy and sorrow; and because they loved the Earth, she answered them. It was not strange that Pan himself sometimes brought home a shepherd's stray lamb. It was not strange, if one broke the branches of a tree, that some fair life within wept at the hurt. Even now, the Earth is glad with us in springtime, and we grieve for her when the leaves go. But in the old days there was a closer union, clearer speech between men and all other creatures, Earth and the stars about her. Out of the life that they lived together, there have come down to us these wonderful tales; and, whether they be told well or ill, they are too good to be forgotten. Includes; The Wood-folk. The judgment of Midas Prometheus. The Deluge. Orpheus and eurydice. Icarus and Daedalus. Phaethon. Niobe. Admetus and the Shepherd. Alcestis. Apollo's Sister. The Calydonian Hunt. Atalanta's Race.
